The historic Denver City Cable Railway Co. building got a whimsical upgrade to a new indoor mini golf course which, includes two nine-hole courses. Families that once gathered at the Old Spaghetti Factory can now return for a different kind of fun. Steve Fox, the founder of Urban Putt, opened the original golf-themed entertainment center in San Francisco in 2014. The new Denver location is only the second across the country and picked because Fox’s wife is a Colorado native. As most mini golf courses have a theme, Urban Putt adds a slight twist with pop culture references, sly jokes, and hidden secrets. Urban Putt Denver provides a Colorado tour of landmarks starting with the Blue Mustang seen at Denver International Airport and ending at Red Rocks Amphitheater.  

 

As players enjoy the game, Urban Putt offers a “chef-driven cuisine” with a menu designed by Chef Dane Boryta. The made-from-scratch kitchen utilizes local ingredients to serve sports-bar favorites such as sliders, pretzel knots, and mac and cheese. The menu also encompasses a variety of tastes including, lamb kibbeh, seared tuna, empanadas, pizza, and much more. The handsome bar serves local beers and craft cocktails that players can enjoy on the course. With clever design and innovation, Denverites and visitors can tee up and have some fun at Urban Putt.
